With GNOME 3.6, polkit and networkmanager moving to [extra], ConsoleKit has now
been removed from the repositories. Any package that previously depended on it
now relies on systemd-logind instead. That means that the system must be booted
with systemd to be fully functional.

In addition to GNOME, both KDE and XFCE are also affected by this change.
